In 2008 Lid was selected to the program "Young directors project" for the Salzburg Festival with his staging of Brecht/Eislers play The Measures Taken (in German : Die Maßnahme). The theater suite Elephant Stories (2009) was an audio-visual confrontation between the theater room and a "new naturalism" represented by the new neuro-sciences. Following up this critical discussion, he used Gerhart Hauptmanns naturalistic piece (1889) Before Sunrise (Vor Sonnenaufgang) as a prism towards an upcoming new naturalism . Under the motto "Theatre in times of crisis" Lid (re)constructed Brechts "Fatzer" for the Bergen International Festival 2012 recognized in both Norwegian and German press . During 2012 - 2013 Vagn Lid has developed a trilogy called "Games of sorrow" (Norwegian: Sørgespill-triologien). In his music-dramaturgical conception, Lid searches for, and tries to articulate ... "the individuals inside the systems and, the other way around, the systems inside the individuals". The concept attempts "to overcome the gap between the typical individualization of the "classical" theatre on the one hand, and the statistical abstractions of the "documentary" theatre, on the other". The first of Vagn Lids Games of Sorrow was STRAFF (Punishment), performed for the first time at Logen Teater in Bergen, September dato 2012. The second one was "KILL THEM ALL!" written for, and performed at Nationaltheatret in Oslo, February 2013, both receiving outstanding reviews, and released discussions also outside Norway [ permanent dead link ]. The last part of the trilogy is "JudasEvangeliet",(The Gospel of Judas) developed with Transiteatret-Bergen for The Ultima Contemporary Music Festival in Oslo with premiere at the Opera September 11, 2013
